# Getting Started

Layouts (opens new window) addon extends the YOOtheme Pro Builder with the ability to create multiple & cross-site Layout Libraries (opens new window) from local or external storages.

Let's create our first Library from a local storage.

  1. Access Essentials -> Layout Libraries section in the YOOtheme Pro Customizer.
  2. Notice that existing libraries will be listed in this section.
  3. Now click on the New Library button and set a Name for our custom library.
  4. In the storage field create a new Local storage setting a folder of your choice.
  5. Click the Save button to confirm the library creation.
  6. At this point the new library will become available as part of the Builder Library and Elements Presets workflow.
